Start time: Try to arrive by 6:00pm, the hike will start at exactly 6:15pm.
We will meet by the bear statue located at the Fern Dell entrance of Griffith Park (Los Feliz Blvd. & Fern Dell Dr., Los Angeles 90027, CA). Do not park on Fern Dell Dr., there is no parking allowed after sunset. Instead park on the streets south of Los Feliz Blvd. (Oxford Ave. or Serrano Ave.).
Description: This will be a moderate paced social hike. The goal will be to reach Mt. Hollywood before sunset, which should be at 7:55pm. From Fern Dell Dr. we will take the the more difficult trails up to the Observatory and then to Mt. Hollywood. We will probably spend at least 30 minutes at the top of Mt. Hollywood, so bring snacks to have while we wait for sunset. We will head back down the easier trails to Fern Dell, it will get dark SO BRING A FLASHLIGHT. The hike will be a total of 4 miles and take about 2 hours and 30 minutes.
